Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
A Great way to cut down points is to take all the ingredients from a philly cheesesteak sandwich and mix It around. Instead of chopping up the peppers and putting it all on bread, We've gotten rid of the bread and stuffed everything inside the pepper!

Prep the Peppers
My mom isn't a fan of green peppers so I used a variety of bell peppers, but for a traditional philly cheesesteak, green are the way to go. I washed them and cut the tops off and cleaned out the seeds. Once nice and clean I placed them standing up in a baking dish and threw them in the oven to cook until soft.
Philly Cheesesteak Filling
While the peppers are getting nice and soft in the oven, with about 20 minutes left on the clock, I cooked the chopped mushrooms and onion in a skillet until they were soft.
I then seasoned both sides of the steak and chopped it into strips.
I added them to the skillet and cooked it until the steak was cooked through. This happened with about 8 minutes left on the clock, until the peppers beeped.
Stuffing Them Up
Once the peppers were soft, I removed them from the oven, and the stuffing commenced. using a small tongs, I started with a scoop of the cheesesteak mix, followed by half a slice of provolone and repeated twice.
After the pepper was nice and full, I topped it with another slice of provolone.
I put them back in the oven for a few minutes to get the cheese nice and melty.
Once the cheese is gooey on top I took the out and served them right away! They were soo tasty and filling and such a good break from all the zero point meats. I like to splurge from time to time on different meats to keep from getting bored. 9 points for a big meal is still very good and you don't even miss the bread at all!
